Hate speech online: a human rights violation towards all!

The workshops took place in many secondary schools and high schools in Rome, Naples, Trapani, Modica and involved more than 450 students. The workshops by Amnesty International – Italy were delivered with the aim of reflecting about hate speech online as a human rights violation, giving students tools to identify the violation of migrant and refugees’ rights by hate speech online. The activities developed starting from Silence Hate booklet (link all’articolo sul sito), with a human right perspective, gave the opportunity to youth in addressing those topics and discussing collectively about their definition of online Hate Speech starting from the one stated by ECRI Recommendation 15/2016, reflecting on their real life experience and about the public opinion given from the newspaper’s way to refer to events. Some of the classes, those of the high schools in Rome, were also involved in creating counter-narratives and strategies with a creative and artistic approach making murals inspired to Bansky under the guidance of the artist Chiara Fazi.
